As we’ve discussed before on this site, the issue of Batman creator Bill Finger receiving the credit he deserves is certainly a major one. It’s a topic that has been garnering more and more attention over the past few years, culminating in Bill receiving co-creator billing on Batman projects like Gotham, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the 75th anniversary edition of Detective Comics #27.
Now the new Hulu documentary Batman and Bill, which debuts on the streaming service on October 14, aims to shine a light on the process that led to Bill getting justice. The documentary chronicles the journey of the Finger family to achieve the proper credit for Bill, as well as the efforts of Bill the Boy Wonder author Marc Tyler Nobleman to aid in their quest. This past weekend at New York Comic-Con 2016, we had the opportunity to speak with the documentary’s filmmakers Sheena Joyce and Don Argott, writer Marc Tyler Nobleman, producer Michael Uslan, and Bill Finger’s granddaughters Athena Finger and Alethia Mariotta (the latter of whom also serves as the family’s attorney.) You can check out the interview right here by clicking on the videos throughout this post (our talk with Michael Uslan and Marc Tyler Nobleman was a particular favorite of mine!), or you can watch them directly on YouTube by clicking here.
